5.50 Punchestown

Although MR FIFTYONE (best price 4-1) has a bit to find on the official figures, but with his confidence boosted via a smooth victory over today’s course last time out, Jessica Harrington’s charge might just capable of bridging the gap. Prior to that well-needed success, the son of Jeremy had cut a slightly frustrated figure in many competitive handicaps when well fancied, but given a small field, fast ground and a sound pace he looked a totally different proposition and with a similar set of circumstances presented to him this evening, he looks set fair for another bold bid.

8.20 Punchestown

ANCIENT SANDS (best price 6-1) is building himself a nice little consistent profile and his good form looks set to continue based on his recent exploits. A solid runner-up to Tempo Mac over tonight’s C&D at the festival back in April, John Queally’s charge went one place better when landing a similarly competitive affair at Killarney last time out. If you discount one inexplicably poor run on heavy ground at Leopardstown back in January, his form figures under both codes since November read 12112221 and with fast ground and track very much in his favour, it makes sense to play the son of Footstepsinthesands with a certain air of confidence he will hit the fame again at the very least.
